Investing in Safety
Safety of our students, on campus and off, is our top priority. We respect the rights of our students to be responsible members of the community and hold them to high standards of conduct.
In an effort to prevent crime on neighborhood streets we have partnered with the Metropolitan Police Department to put MPD officers on the streets with Georgetown’s Department of Public Safety Officers.
We have increased our investment by funding an increase in the number of MPD officers patrolling neighborhood streets during nighttime hours.
We respect the rights of our students to be responsible members of the community and hold them to high standards of conduct, both on and off campus.
In addition to the enhanced partnership between Georgetown’s DPS and MPD officers, Georgetown continues our highly effective Student Neighborhood Assistance Program (SNAP) program, to assist students during late night hours and to respond to our neighbors' concerns about student behavior off campus. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, Georgetown University staff members, along with private security officers, patrol the West Georgetown and Burleith neighborhoods.
We are investing in safety to deter and prevent crime and reduce noise on neighborhood streets. We are proud that 82% of off campus homes where Georgetown students live did not require any engagement with SNAP, PDS or MPD.
